It's not Spring cleaning around here, more like I'm winterizing my bookshelves. What that means is, the stacked and packed shelves need to be cleaned off so I can have room to put my winter-reading books somewhere. These times are usually fraught with both trepidation and excitement. Trepidation as I look at these books as time well-spent because I learned something from each of them, and excitement because I know something else is going to take their place.
Instead of taking them to my local Goodwill or posting them on Paperback Swap (which I do often, by the way. I read a lot of books, so if you want to follow my profile so you can see what books I'm posting, be my guest. Amanda's Paperback Swap Profile) or taking them to my local library, I wanted to offer some to my friends first.
So, today through 8/31, I'm hosting a Rafflecopter giveaway where you can enter to win your choice of book.
There will be three winners chosen, First place gets first choice, second place gets second choice, and third place gets third choice. The catch? You MUST answer me within 24 hours or another winner will be chosen.
Different ways to gain more points, so don't be shy! Share away and enjoy the fun!
